What about Brett Fav-r-uh?

I ain't got too much for you today. But I'll try to get something going for you. I haven't been feeling my best. It seems to be a really tough allergy season and it's kicking my ass. As a result, I'd much rather be sleeping right now than typing. But... maybe it will make me delirious and make for some entertaining rantings at the end.

There is one thing I want to put out there, and I'll make this a one topic posting today.

I didn't watch MNF last night. I was burnt out on football from watching Sunday night's debacle. So you tell me... how many times did the announcers make a big deal about Brett Favre possibly making his last MNF appearance?

I won't miss the slobbering over Brett Favre when he's gone, or should I say if he's gone.

Great QB, yes. Hall of Famer, yes. Do I respect him? Very much.

But I've never been a huge fan of his. That's just me.

How's this for an inflammatory comment? I'll even go as far as to say that the only real difference between Brett Favre and Drew Bledsoe is that Bledsoe lost to Favre in the Super Bowl. Bledsoe picked that day to throw a bunch of interceptions where Favre didn't. (Desmond Howard also had a say in how the game ended up more than both of them.) If the roles were reversed and Bledsoe won that day, I think their careers might have taken different paths. Bledsoe might have gained some confidence and Favre might still be looking for his ring.

I don't know if I really truly believe that. And I'll admit I said that mostly for shock value. But really, everybody gets on Bledsoe for throwing dumb interceptions and rightfully so. But Favre has thrown more interceptions in his life. And we all know many of those INT's were of the dumb variety. So what's the difference? Why does Favre get off the hook while other QB's get villified for doing the same things? Favre plays in a town where they forgive him for everything because he won that Super Bowl, and Bledsoe played in places that were much less forgiving in the long run.

No, I'm not trying to say Bledsoe is as good as Favre. Favre has much more mobility and has many more TD passes. And I'd even say that Favre has a more fan-friendly attitude about the game with his gunslinger mentality while Bledsoe has taken on more of a grumpy persona lately. I'd take Favre in his prime over Bledsoe in his prime. However, if the roles had been reversed and Bledsoe had won that day, don't you think it would be a little different story now? Maybe Bledsoe still eventually falls apart, but maybe Favre isn't seen as a legend if that happened.

All of that is speculative, yes. But I will say this, and this I truly believe. Favre benefitted by spending his career in Green Bay where the fans saw him through Packer colored glasses. If he had been a QB in New York, they would have turned on him in recent years with all those bad interceptions, past Super Bowl win or no past Super Bowl win. In Green Bay, they forgave him for a lot, and maybe too much. And I think that forgiveness made him want to stay in Green Bay about two years too long.

You Packers fans can bash me all you want. But I say Favre should have retired two years ago and gotten out of the way. He cost Green Bay more than he helped them in recent years. And without Favre around to hold them down, the Packers could have rebuilt into a more solid contender because they would have been forced to do it. With Favre around, the team stays in a mode where they don't grow.

And if Favre even entertains any thought of coming back next year, the Packers fans ought to say a resounding "Oh hell naw!" But we all know they won't.

I read today that apparently the Packers would bring him back in 2007, and would bring him back as a starter if he wanted to.

And if they do, I will say that at least that's one team the rest of the NFC won't have to worry about contending.

just say no to Dook.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

no Duke

Isiah Thomas said...

Favre getting bobbed on endlessly by announcers is sickening.

I think the main difference between Bledsoe and Favre is that you'd want to pop a few vicodin and beers with Favre. Bledsoe, eh, not so much.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

ahh, that's messed up, he deleted the post that I got first on



boooooooooo

The Rev said...

Sorry Steve. It got posted twice accidentally and I simply picked one to delete.

Looks like I picked the right one though.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'm in town to play the Dolphins dumbass.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I love bacon. And Britney's beave.

El Padrino said...

bacon and beave
excellent combo

El Padrino said...

bledsoe sucks
farve has more talent in his numb pinky than bledsoe

THE CHAMP. said...

I would disagree with you about Favre getting out of the way. Packers management should have done a few things differently...

1) paid whatever it cost to keep holmgren.

2) Surrounded favre with quality receivers

3) Beefed up the offensive line

4) get a better defense

These are just off the top of my head.

Isiah Thomas said...

taylor ham is an underrated breakfast meat.

El Padrino said...

my life will be complete if I can get a vag shot of Alba.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I save the ham for sundays. Hot ham & hard rolls baby! that and raw beef & onion sammiches.

Isiah Thomas said...

"raw beef and onions" - Meiz, please elaborate.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd say she's a few more years and bombed films from giving us that EP. Unless some crafty papparazi can hook us.

Isiah Thomas said...

Alba doesn't seem like the type of chick who wants you to stick a finger in her ass if you get my drift.

The Rev said...

I'll counter that, champ.

If Favre were out of the way, the team might have been more concentrated on finding those better receivers, better O-line,. better D, etc. With Favre in there, I think the team fooled themselves into thinking they were better then they were, and that Favre would make them better. I think that kept them out of the mindset you need to find those kinds of players.

In 1996, that line of thinking might work for them with a younger Favre, but not the 2006 version of Favre.

El Padrino said...

im bankin on a crazy papo, maybe hide under a subway grate or something

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

I don't about Alba, I can't even think of any soft core sex scenes she's been in? Has she ever even showed a nipple?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Rye bread- I prefer a half rye

Raw beef- Ground sirloin. You gotta have really good ground meat otherwise it's not very safe. No fat in it.

Onion- Sliced, chopped or diced. However you prefer. And salt and pepper to your liking. It goes on top of one slice of bread. Enjoy!

The Rev said...

That sounds pretty Vicking disgusting.

Cook that meat, and make a damn patty melt with some cheese I say.

Isiah Thomas said...

you can rabies from that shit Meiz.

Isiah Thomas said...

Patty melts are underrated too.

Isiah Thomas said...

* get rabies.

anonymous said...

favre shoulda gone to the Fins, ravens, or my personal pick.. the bears.

actually, i think McNair OR favre woulda been a good fit in Chi-town. whats the chances that Mike Vick heads up that way?

bears need a Q something fierce.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

No you can't. Its not like I eat it often. Kind of a special treat. I've never seen anybody get sick from it. You just need to consult your butcher. It's perfectly fine. I think it must just be a WI thing. Or maybe even MN.

anonymous said...

ben wallace: was your extra few million worth it now?

The Rev said...

Patty melts can be quite awesome. In the same boat as a reuben sandwich.

Zeke Fucks My Mom said...

ABCs best 20 songs of the last 20 years

" … Baby One More Time" Britney Spears, 1999 at #14

"Hey Ya!" OutKast, 2003 at #2

"There She Goes" The LA's, 1990 at #9

"Like A Prayer" Madonna, 1989 at #16

No Pearl Jam, STP, Ozzy, Chillie Peppers but these quacks made the top 20.

NO FUCKING WAY!!!!!

Who put this list together, a panel of 13 year old cheerleaders

ebntx said...

speaking of wallace, whats up with the no headband shit on the bulls?

anonymous said...

i love my meat with blood and fur. just cut the animals head off and im goin to town.

dont look at me with those eyes..

anonymous said...

we're paying you 60 million to be the player that youve always been.. but please dont wear a $2 headband, it affects the team too much.

Isiah Thomas said...

Meiz do you go to a butcher only shop or do you get this from the local supermarket.

Everytime I ax the supermarket guy for something he gets pissed and half asses it. I wouldn't trust the guy personally.

El Padrino said...

i go to a butcher too

once in awhile local supermarket will due

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

You can go to the supermarket around here. The Cedarburg area prides itself on being old-timey. Iam, have you indulged in the cannibal sandwich being a midwesterner?

The Rev said...

I actually have no problem with Like a Prayer on that list. Hey Ya I can live with. But some of the others are hinky. And not having Pearl Jam on there is a travesty.

I'm trying to figure out how Crazy by Gnarls Barkley makes the cut after only a few months. Good song, yes. But a little soon to be on a 20 year list.

anonymous said...

no cannibal animals for me.

anonymous said...

new kids on the block should be on before gnarls barkley.

The Rev said...

Why do you need to have a no headband rule on your tea?

Scott Skiles sounds like he's a big dick. Either that, or he has a small one and is compensating for it.

The Rev said...

No Bobby Brown on the list?

My Prerogative? Come on!

Isiah Thomas said...

no idea where I'd find a butcher only shop around here. We have high end "supermarket" type places that would prob be the closest thing.

"cannibal sandwiches" - elaborate

Isiah Thomas said...

does ABC own the record labels these people are on? prob just trying to get some buzz to increase their sales.

The Rev said...

There's no real soul on that music list.

The hip hop songs are either from white guys, or in the case of Outkast their least hip-hop sounding track.

I call bullshit on the whole list.

Isiah Thomas said...

Skiles also has a "ankle tape" rule and other rules.

Dood needs to chill. 4-9 ain't exactly solid ground.

El Padrino said...

No BIG?

what, hip-hop is not music?

and no Mariah Carey?

The Rev said...

It's actually Q magazine's list and ABC is reporting on it.

I would be curious though. Someone influenced that list.

Isiah Thomas said...

listen to Outkasts first album and their last few....startling transformation.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Some people call them "cannibal sandwiches".

The Rev said...

Q magazine is a British magazine.

That explains it.

El Padrino said...

doesnt mariah have like the most #1's

Isiah Thomas said...

has Mariah had any nip slips/box pics?

I thought I saw on of her last year drinking champagne in the ocean and a boobie popped out.

anonymous said...

Mariah doesnt have a full blown sex tape already? she was way into that whole 'whore phase' for a while. seems like something big wouldve come from it..

The Rev said...

I believe she has had more than one nip slip.

I remember someone starting a rumor that Derek Jeter broke up with her because she smelled down there.

Spaceman Spiff said...

there are some pics of alba and her nip in a green dress(not a see through dress, but the part that covers the boobs flipped up somehow, maybe the wind, maybe God, probably God showing us what He made, and what was under was alba nip) on a red carpet

Los said...

Smokin' - you just resent that Green Bay beat the Pats that Super Bowl. If Joe Montana were qb'ing that game, you'd probably still make the Bledsoe comparison.

El Padrino said...

i hope glavine goes to the braves, fuck em

leaving a team in limbo is not cool

The Rev said...

No, Los. I would not make that comparison.

I'm dealing in the realm of QB's who have only won one or no Super Bowls. Montana is in another class above those guys.

Yes, I was rooting for the Pats that year. But I don't get bitter over the Pats. I get bitter over the Eagles.

temwr said...

Favre is a lot better than Bledsoe.

ebntx said...

johnny carson was either very brave or stupid.

horseshoes

Isiah Thomas said...

horseshoes is best played drunk.

I was a pretty good horse-shoe player in my day ... whenever that was.

mound of venus said...

i saw alba and rosario dawson in person a couple of weeks ago here in Austin. they are filming the sequel to sin city. they both are really short. granted alba is dope but i'm 6'3 and girls 5'4 or less are like little kids to me or something. i just cant take them seriously. but having said all that i would propose to her in a second if she was down.

The Rev said...

Carson was the master at making himself part of the stunt.

ToddPacker said...

Can anyone else imagine Meiz just chowing down on raw meat and pouring vodka down his throat all while making sure your FedEx gets delivered on time...the man is a legend

Los said...

Looks like I'll be using U.P.S. from now on.

The Rev said...

"I was a pretty good horse-shoe player in my day"

Usually guys say things like that when they are 75 years old sitting on a park bench feeding the pigeons.

Quotes like that are then followed up with "Back in '62, I used to be able to throw a horseshoe a quarter mile."

ToddPacker said...

hey los and rev....why no props on the last podcast....there had to be a couple of downloads from florida?

The Rev said...

Um... I thought Meiz was UPS.

The Rev said...

TP... if you're only listening to a feed view it doesn't come up on the map. The map we had involved people who actually download the file onto their computer.

whocares said...

a game a horshoooooooes.

Isiah Thomas said...

I can throw this horseshoe over that mountain.

The Rev said...

Yeah. Coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we would've been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind.

ToddPacker said...

i've downloaded a couple...good stuff on the last podcast....was that pizza any good....any chance Los's mom can make into the basement

Los said...

Inga would probably give me the Rock Bottom, followed by the People's Elboe if she knew I was podcasting stories about her. Then, she would probably goose-step over my carcass.

Los said...

I meant elbow.

The Rev said...

Don't know why you didn't come up on the map then.

The pizza was awesome. You'll have to ask Los about bringing Inga into his basement.

temwr said...

wow an arrested development reference...and not the tv show.


you go on mr. wendel.

temwr said...

I know I am getting old because whenever someone starts talking about high school or college football I start thinking things like "yeah I was a solid player, we should have thrown to me more, we would have won more games...etc, etc." But I am not too old, because I don't say it.

ebntx said...

so tem, what's brutus beating on these days?

The Rev said...

*Jim Ross voice*

MMMMYYYYY GAAAWWWDDDD! INGA JUST ROCK BOTTOMED LOS! WHAT THE HEEELLLLLLL IS GOIN ON?

anonymous said...

Tem, when the story changes to "yeah i used to be a wideout. all-state, avg 'bout 2-hunny a game, 3 TDs.. but then i blew out my knee, couldnt take the full ride. but i tell ya.." then youll know youre in trouble.

Los said...

*Mr McMahon Voice*

Los, you're FIRED!

temwr said...

Instead of the "yeah I played in college, division 3, it is like a few more years of high school ball."


RE: Brutus beating

Most people in town are talking about how they do not want a rematch with UM. This might be the strongest argument out there for a rematch. The OSU faithful would rather play USC or FL than a UM team it already beat. I'd say about 95% of the fans around here feel that way for one reason or another.

The OSU basketball fans are all hoping that they can just keep it close against North Carolina.

I think OSU fans are reverse Philly fans. They never get their hopes up and they win lots of games and a few Nat. Championships along the way.

temwr said...

OK, so the National Braille Press's phone number is very close to my cell phone number. It sucks, at least twice a week I get a call from some blind guy wanting the braille press. And I can't bitch because they are blind.

whocares said...

So am I understaning this correctly?

Los, do you live in your mothers basement? Does your wife Skeeter live down there with you?

ToddPacker said...

los and rev do their podcast from Los's basement....i believe his mom live in her own house

The Rev said...

Interesting...

The National Braille Press is in Boston, and their number is (617) 266-6160.

So something close to that is Temwr's cell phone number.

Let's all try to call Temwr and act like we're blind people looking for a book.

The Rev said...

Inga lives in her own house, and Los owns his own home and his own basement.

temwr said...

And so far a no-go on getting that office. Although I might have scored a printer, which is good because mine was made in May 1995.

whocares said...

Ahhhh, I see. My mistake.

anonymous said...

im going with 6610.. whats everyone else's guess?

The Rev said...

Actually, I think the mistake is in the area code. Boston and Columbus are similar with one number off I believe.

El Padrino said...

IAM's #...

some lady picked up, tem are you a lady?

The Rev said...

There could also be more than one mistake in the dialing. So who knows.

anonymous said...

actually, Los & wife, Rev & fiance, Los' mom, a member of 2 Live Crew and a stripper (with an Amazon snake) live together.

its the nu-Philly version of Real World.

mtv's tagline is "we're back".

anonymous said...

im not dialing, im just guessing what the most likely screwup would be...

temwr said...

Honestly, with what rev gave you and if you think about where i live it isn't hard to get from point a to point b.

It is like Jr. Encyclopedia Brown material.

anonymous said...

Rev, true, could be more mistakes... they are BLIND for cryin out loud!

anonymous said...

why do they have Braile on the drive thru ATM machine?

temwr said...

but yeah blind people kinda suck at dialing, so you gotta take that into consideration.

The Rev said...

We didn't even get a cool member of 2 Live crew in there.

I wanted Luther, they sent us Wongwon.

anonymous said...

rev's thinking deep.. i didnt even think about him being in a diff state.

temwr said...

I went to an ATM machine this weekend and after I withdrew my money it started asking me questions about "Do you want to sign up for this credit card?"

That shit pisses me off. Grandma in the car in front of me has enough trouble getting through the ATM in under 10 minutes as it is and now they are adding questions like this shit at the end???

The Rev said...

I won't say anymore. I don't want your celly to be posted for the world to see.

But I think I got it.

ToddPacker said...

"actually, Los & wife, Rev & fiance, Los' mom, a member of 2 Live Crew and a stripper (with an Amazon snake) live together."


i hear they replaced the stripper with the Philly Fanatic

did u guys hear about the "tragic" story in NY, about dude getting shot up outside a strip club night before his wedding?

seems Rev Jesse needs to fight for someone who's friends didnt try to RUN OVER THE COPS with their car. and then they backed up, and smashed into their (unmarked) police van twice.

but yes, they were total victims.

The Rev said...

Actually, we replaced Los with the Phanatic.

Los dresses up in the Phanatic costume for us. It's quite entertaining.

Next podcast: Rev and Los prank call a "random" number!!

The Rev said...

Speaking of Columbus, how are you all enjoying the Ken Hitchcock era?

El Padrino said...

iam, cops unloaded 50 rounds on those cats....causing some racial problems obviously

but check this 2 of the cops were black themselves
plus that club was being looked at has a hooker harem

temwr said...

Hitcock era barely got news around here. The Bluejackets aren't making a dent because OSU football and basketball takes about 95% of the sports pages.

ebntx said...

"cops unloaded 50 rounds on those cats"

this is called cleansing of the gene pool

temwr said...

Also bluejackets suck so nobody cares right now. Tix are getting very easy to come by though. I suspect I will be able to score the company box for at least 1 home game this season. Usually I only get it for stupid things like minor league boxing.

Read an article once about this dude who would play like 25 bingo cards at once while reading the paper and cash out every night. He was a zip code sorter at the Post Office and had this rain man type numbers ability without the downs.

temwr said...

rain man wasted his talent on cards and blackjack, he should have hit the bingo parlors.

re: blind people.

They had a news story here a few months back about a partially blind guy who was using some eyepiece contraption to help him drive....

his quote was "I still can't fully see...."

re : Alabama CFB.

I'm tired of reading and hearing about this. No big time coach wants to leave their current gig for this job. All you hear from ESPN is "but it's Alabama!"

Look, ESPN and others need to wake the fuck up. This isn't 1966 anymore.

Notre Dame isn't America's University and Alabama isn't a football factory anymore.

Shit like "but its Alabama!" pisses me off.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Thats ish I just made up. Seeing how neither AI nor myself are rhyme slayers he would probably make that same junk up.

bill stoneman is an idiot, the angels need a hitter! not to swap a 3rd baseman/utility and an up and coming pitcher with a 3rd baseman and a pitcher. how does that make any sense

temwr said...

WWL says Rich Rod might be a possibility for the Bama job.

Hopefully he won't bolt the Eers. He should at least stick around another year and give it another shot with White/Slaton.

Isiah Thomas said...

good call spiff. Stoneman has sat around the last 3 years waiting for these prospects.

Now he's willing to make this stupid ass deal.

ToddPacker said...

Zeke i totally agree with you, this is from an ESPN article...sums up the 'bama job pretty well:


"And then there is the cuckoo's nest known as Alabama. Irrational passion and general delusion don't just drive the bus at Alabama. They drive the wheels off it like Dale Earnhardt.
The Crimson Tide went from being in love with Mike Shula last year when he went 10-2 to firing him this year after he went 6-6. Surprise meter reading: 8.5. Then again, we probably shouldn't be surprised.
This is, after all, Alabama.
The unpardonable sin was Shula's 0-4 record against Auburn, but that still doesn't make this the right move at the right time for a program craving stability.

Don't look now, but lordly Alabama has become the single biggest burnout job in college football. The Tide's next coach will be the eighth in the last 25 years and the fifth this century. Nobody -- not even the bottom-feeding, revolving-door, dead-end schools like SMU, UNLV, UTEP, Utah State, San Jose State and so forth -- has gone through five coaches as fast as Alabama.
Since Bear Bryant ascended directly into heaven on a dazzling white cloud, surrounded by a host of angels, the program flux has been ongoing. Only Gene Stallings has coached more than four years in Tuscaloosa without fleeing or being fired. Stallings lasted seven seasons in the 1990s, which now makes him look like Joe Paterno in terms of permanence.
Between the stability of Stallings and the turbulence of today, Alabama has been slammed with NCAA sanctions for buying an overweight, underproductive defensive lineman; scandalized by the indiscretions of first Mike DuBose, then Mike Price; dumped by Dennis Franchione, who convinced his players to "hold the rope" through probation but couldn't wait to drop it himself; and now it has fired the alum who helped drag the program through the toughest part of its penalty phase.
Somebody find the prestige in that recent run. "

Isiah Thomas said...

deal cock-man or Mcpherson before Santana.

ToddPacker said...

sorry i should have just linked the story...didn't realize it was that long

whocares said...

zeke,

That's exactly what it's like to be an Auburn fan these days. Bama fans dont realize that the Bear doesnt coach there anymore and no one gives a damn that they won 10 National Championships from the 40's to the 70's.

The way the rest of the country views Notre Dame is the same way Auburn fans view Alabama. Great tradition, not much to speak of in the last 20 years...

Martin VanNostrand said...

I bet a lot of AL recruits fall to TN, FL, LSU, GA and recently AR. They haven't been the same since Fulmer turned informer on them.

Most of the top in-state recruits go to Auburn these days. They've gotten four out of the last five Mr. Football's from the state and last year got something like 7 of the top 10 in state recruits. But LSU and UT are big on coming in and grabbing a few every year. Jamarcus Russel is from Alabama and so is one of UT's receivers...

So Brit, with 2 kids, has been partying every night since her divorce?

She gets hell in the media for letting the damn kid sit on her lap when driving, but when she goes out on the town 10 nights in a row, nothing....

Martin VanNostrand said...

Yeah Dr. Nick Riveria had a hand in that cockamainy Bees scheme fo sho.

Isiah Thomas said...

haven't seen hustle and flow. Everytime I see that dorky white guy all I can think about is the riverdance he did at the black frat in that one movie. That shit was funny.

temwr said...

I think Pat White is from Alabama. They wanted him to play WR, he wanted to play QB, so he went to WVU.

Isiah Thomas said...

a local sports talk show was commenting on how Holtz needs to have one of those dentist suction tube things in his mouth at all times. Very funny.

Martin VanNostrand said...

who - can't believe I left AU off that list. My mind is numb.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Zeke - Road Trip. What'd you do skin a cheeta? ha ha.

anonymous said...

hustle and flow is worth a rental if you wanna laugh really hard.

what a shitfest. funny though.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Everytime I see that hefty black dude I think of Hang Time. Not hilarious.

Martin VanNostrand said...

"what a shitfest"

this should show up in more movie descriptions. At least you would know going in.

Martin VanNostrand said...

TP - got ya, Frink is the red haired cat with the glasses and Dr. Nick is the "Hi evely body" guy. Funny stuff.

Martin VanNostrand said...

So Frink has brown hair. I'm a retard.

Simpsons

Martin VanNostrand said...

I did name name check hang time. One will watch most anything after sports Center on a Saturday Morning in college.

Maybe Los can get that retard doc's name and drop it in the next podcast.

anonymous said...

we need a retard cure for people in general.

(and MV, at least we're not talking about SBTB:TNC. the hoops part saves the other show... (that blonde chick was a shooter! hah)

temwr said...

Hang Time!

That was the name of that goofy ass Saved by The Bell basketball show. I have been trying to remember the name of that thing for about 2 years now.

Spaceman Spiff said...

Stoneman has been living off the world series victory in 2002 so he thought he had time to develop the prospects. turns out all except kendrick, and possibly napoli (both have no home run power tho) have been busts and now in a desperation offseason to save his job, hes thinking making a 360 degree trade? maybe he thinks just making any kind of move will make him look good because he has done nothing(except guerrero which was easy as he was vlad's gm in montreal), but we are not idiots, trading a 3rd baseman for a 3rd baseman = same team, ditto with the pitchers.

JFreak said...

So many references, so little knowledge of them.

Isiah Thomas said...

I'd heard the Diamondbacks changed their colors a few months ago.

Just checked out the new uni's.

They say "D Backs" on the front.

W-T-H?

that's funny. Too close to D Bags.

Spaceman Spiff said...

angels are possibly even worse off with garcia and crede. santana in coming into his prime(use him in a better trade if anything) and figgins can be plugged anywhere

Martin VanNostrand said...

Is Reggie Theus related to Reggie and Cheryl Miller?

Isiah Thomas said...

the cure for retarted people is death.

anonymous said...

ToddPacker said...

IAM

try not to beat up anyone at the bb game

temwr said...

I bet iam has a killer J. He probably plays the 3.

Martin VanNostrand said...

Alot of those Simpsons characters run together in my head. I tried to play Simpsons Trivia once thinking I had decent knowledge about the show. Some of those questions were crazy ridiculous. Much harder than Star Wars Trivia. Commence the mocking.
